My '07 E91 also has the mpg gauge where the water temp gauge should reside. Among the non-turbo E9x models, only the E92 (IIRC) has the temp gauge as the 335i has an oil temp gauge.

Assuming you live in Massachusetts USA, you can't have a 325i E92; BMW didn't import such a car to the USA.

2011 335d with 80,200 miles. Great car but the OEM Gold Extended Warranty has been useless for me.

Just rolled 144K and have had a intercooler and JB4 since 75k. Early 07 w/o oil cooler to that point. Just bought ER cooler and retro kit. Going for another 100k just to nice of a car to dump with it paid off.

Nice! I'm at about 145K and I put approx 25K a year so I should be there in 2 years! So far the car hasn't giving me too much trouble.

I'm a fan of keeping the car until the wheels fall off, and I had an 1989 E30 325is as well. I miss that car. It too had about 240k before I gave it to my cousin. I was going to keep it and perhaps sell it on my own, but I'm never home to show the car.

Thanks for the story behind your 200k E90. I hope it goes for another 200k for you. Cheers!

+1. I trade them the second the warranty expires. I've traded some cool cars. Not sure these modern cars will hold up as well. I miss my Jeep TJ the most...

Congrats OP! This is an awesome accomplishment. Wish I had the skills.

Well I'd have to stop driving it for a bit over 3 years for you to just catch up to me now (227K).

Always good to hear these cars can last a long time. What kind of maintenance schedule have you been following?

was just going to say. We would never see this in a 335. You would go through 4 set of turbo's 6 fuel pumps and at least 4 carbon build up removal and a hole in your wallet so deep you can almost f#$%# it.
